Mathematics with Ms. Helfen
Hello everyone! Welcome to the virtual classroom for Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry.
Feel free to explore the site and let me know if you have any questions.
Updates on homework assignments and general class announcements should be posted daily.
I look forward to incorporating my experience with technology into the curriculum to help create a more interactive learning experience. Students will be given the opportunity to explore the content they are learning through the use of online blogs, Voicethreads, and interactive games.
I have created a Voicethread specifically for my Geometry class, but feel free to take a look and familiarize yourself with this exciting new online tool! To get to it click here: "Voicethread - Geometry: Lines and Angles"!
I have also given a sample of a Jeopardy game show that will also be incorporated into the classroom for test review purposes. Click on the specific class you are enrolled in (Algebra I, Algebra II, or Geometry), scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click on "Jeopardy"!
Besides these specific technological tools, we will also be using several interactive demonstrations and activities that are found on the internet.

I look forward to seeing the rewards this new curriculum offers to the students, the parents, and to the teacher.
